In May, I’ve decided to liquidate my AutoWealth investment to conserve cash for my potential upcoming large purchases after the investment return to a gain of about $400~ excluding the management fees paid. As I’ll be dipping into an extremely large portion of my emergency savings, I will be slowing down on my investment to save up more cash, while still maintaining my investment rate on StashAway.

In May, all of my StashAway portfolio have recovered, while Endowus remains underwater. I’ve liquidated my AutoWealth investment before the latest week rally which I could perhaps have an additional gain of $500, though I should not be too affected by it.
What I really dislike for Endowus is the long overhead for its recent re-optimisation that took several days during the high rally. In addition, the chart user experience is also lacking with the extremely large draw down shown. So far, I would still prefer StashAway display that make more sense.
Looking at my mid-year performance, I might not be able to reach my initial goal of $100,000 after the recent adjustment to be more steered towards cash-saving.
